Trent Refractories Supporting The UK Steel Charter
We're working with UK supply chains to reinvigorate our country's infrastructure and economy with UK steel. The UK steel industry has a world-renowned reputation for world-class steel - this is essential for continuing the building of our country's infrastructure and supporting the UK economy.
Buy the best! #ukmfg #steelbuildingbritain. 7.3 million tonnes of steel are produced in the UK each year, which is around 65% of the UK’s annual requirement. For every 1,000 tonnes of steel produced in the UK the impact is:
- 4 people are employed directly and 6.6 jobs are created in the local supply chain and communities
- £880,000 is added to the UK economy
- 960 tonnes of steel are recycled and used again and again
- 150 tonnes of CO2 are saved compared to importing from the EU
